SWATCH REVIEW: CHINA GLAZE TEXTURE

We’ve seen a couple different textures polishes over the last 6 months or so & were curious how China Glaze’s Texture polish would hold up in comparison.

We’ve been so impressed with this year’s Summer collections – with all these brights & neons there’s so much to love! Essie’s new Summer collection strays away from the path creating a summer palette that’s different than what we’ve been seeing – so refreshing! These polishes are perfect for the summer and are unlike anything we … Continue reading
